Peiyi is an avid backpacker who has stepped foot on 30 countries (so far!). She spent nine months backpacking across Asia, out of which some months were spent volunteering at orphanages and homes for persons with disabilities in Nepal and China. When she isn’t finding her way around the world, she spends time with nature (great lover of the National Parks in North America) and dancing to 1920s swing music.
